Watch it HERE. “Happy Endings” is available HERE via Warner Records.
Directed by PIX3LFACE [A$AP Rocky, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Saint JHN], the video oozes with throwback vibes and nineties-style cartoon animation, some hand drawn by Shinoda himself. Against its sunny Downtown Los Angeles backdrop, Shinoda rhymes with hunger and heart as UPSAHL sings the unshakable hook between emotive bars from iann dior. With its kinetic editing and intimate closeups, the visual bottles the song’s upbeat spirit with just the right amount of tension and release.
